Mark Collins, Linux online game Programming (Prima, 2001)
The major challenge with interpreting desktop books which are six years previous is that, good, they're six years previous. this isn't an immense challenge within the home windows international; as we've seen, occasionally the most up-tp-date home windows know-how will remain round much longer than the provider contracts mandate. That, in spite of the fact that, is sort of by no means the case with Linux, the place a major pool of builders pretty well guarantees that issues will develop and alter on a per thirty days, if no longer day-by-day, foundation. nonetheless, the fundamentals of the mandatory wisdom to get less than the hood and tinker with Linux will carry precise, so it is not like there is totally not anything to achieve from a ebook like this in case you are a complete newb. (Sorry, I despise that spelling, but when i take advantage of the proper one, Amazon filters it for being one letter off from a undeniable slang time period they do not appear to like. )
I am, actually, that newb. Having eventually thrown Microsoft over for strong in each element of my lifestyles i will be able to (I nonetheless preserve a home windows field round for video games, and i've to take advantage of it at work), all these database and video game initiatives i used to be engaged on should be Linux tasks now. So i began with what i'll get on the library, Collins' six-year-old treatise on Linux online game programming. First, allow me say that if you are trying to find hands-on instructional stuff, this isn't the ebook for you. Collins is extra drawn to getting you to appreciate the concepts--why you must do whatever, instead of what it truly is you must do. whereas this is often evidently a great factor and results in programmers who comprehend extra of what they're on approximately, it is most likely worthy a caveat emptor for the folks who're simply trying to find shortcuts, or solutions to a selected challenge. the second one factor to be acknowledged, then, is that online game layout itself is the main moveable a part of any video game undertaking. whereas Collins does delve into a few issues which are extra appropriate to Linux improvement than the other style (an whole bankruptcy, for instance, is dedicated to the OpenSource debate), a few of the particular instruments Collins talks approximately, and all the high-level ideas, are acceptable to video game designers who application for any platform. therefore, i'll move methods the following; criticize the booklet for probably not being approximately Linux particularly, or compliment it for being universal?
The challenge is, i cannot do one or the opposite. How necessary you will discover it is going to most probably rely on how a lot interpreting you might have already performed on designing video games and constructing video games with C++. If you have performed an awful lot, you'll get the main worthy out of the chapters on SDL and openGL/openAL; another way, learn the whole lot. ***

Can You Really Screw Up the System? In general, no. When you log in to a Unix system and use your personal userid, the worst you can do is remove your own directories and files. As long as you're logged in as yourself, commands you type won't affect anything critical to the Unix system, only your own personal directories and files. Score one for Unixas an average user, you cannot really break the system. With Windows or Macintosh, though, it can be different story. If you have system administrator rights, meaning that you can log in as root (giving you access to all the system directories and files), you can do a lot of damage if you're not extremely careful.

This creates an empty file. 2. ls -l file* Optionally, verify that the file was created by typing ls l file*. 2, you'll see the name of the new file as well as its length (0) and the date and time of its creation (likely seconds before the current time, if you're following along).
